Too much Cuteness, I tell you!

Greetings Elisabeth Bell Fans,
Can you believe that the month have May only has a couple of days left in it? Wow, the month seems to have flown by.

Today I have a little something to show you, just because I couldn't resist the cuteness. It's that time of year, and everyone loves a little sweet treat that is nice and cold.

I thought it would be fun to color "Sweet Sundae" from Elisabeth Bells Digital Gallery.  I tell you, Elisabeth Bell is one AMAZING artist, isn't she?  No matter what she draws next, I'm sure to fall in love with it.  I know that these are just drawings, but I honestly feel like I know these little dolls personally.  They are so life like, aren't they? 

The inside of my card is fairly simple, with some birthday wishes....

I just love using shades of pink and blue.  I colored my image with Copic's, and did a bit of distressing too.  The background paper or shall I say the card base was stamped with some accessory stamps also designed by Elisabeth Bell, for Whiff of Joy.  If I can remember correctly, the little ice cream cones were part of WoJ's 2009 Summer Stamp Kit.   The flowers I used, are from Wild Orchid Crafts, with a little bit of scrap beading tucked in behind. 

Now I have something else that is just as cute as "Sweet Sundae" is... 
This is a stamp from none other than

 Elphine House Australia also known as "EHA" had sold stamps from Belles 'n Whistles in the past, but now they are selling their very own line of clear polymer stamps designed and copyrighted by Elisabeth Bell.  These stamps are exclusive for Elphine House.  You may have seen their very first release in their web shop (which you can go to, by clicking on the purple logo)  but this is the first card that I have created with these magnificent new stamps.

It's time to meet "A Bouquet of Flowers For You"  You can find her HERE.  She's available for purchase right now.  =)

I have found a couple of challenges that this card would fit perfectly into.  So I thought, why not enter it?

The Crafty Pad - "Lace & Bows"  Yep, I have both of those here....
Southern Girls Challenge - "Frills & Polish"  check,  Got that too....
Stamp Something Challenge - "Something Sentimental" - Of course I have that....

So there you have it...  A couple of fun challenges, and an adorable card if I do say so myself. 

Thanks so much for stopping by, and sticking with me through this long post.
